About this project

Joomla Web Fonts is a component and plugin that allows web designers to use non web-safe fonts on their site.  It was initially commissioned for the community by who paid for two iterations on it.

See it in action on YouTube:

Every month, around 1,000 users download and use this extension.  One of these users approached me, the developer, wanting to know if I planned on releasing a version for Joomla 3.0, which I didn't.  Though I would love to develop for free, I have responsibilities to my employees, family, and clients and had no plans for updating the extension for a non-LTS release.

The user, suggested starting a Kickstarter campaign to see if the Joomla community would support an update.  Which is why you're here!

If the funding goal is reached, I will:

  • Update the extension to be 3.0 compatible
  • Combine the extension and plugin into one package
  • Integrate an update server to let users know when a new release is available.
  • Perform whatever improvements I can within the time alloted.

Thank-you for taking the time to read this and review the project.  If you have any comments or ideas or are a developer who would like to contribute your time, please contact me through my website:



Risks and challenges

Risk is pretty low for this project. I wrote the extension and know it intimately. Blue Bridge's name is attached to the project and we deliver what we commit to. About the only hiccup would be project start time. *If our current commitment to our clients has filled up our schedule*, it may be 2 - 3 weeks after funding is reached before development starts.

    Billionaire Philanthropist Patron:
    I will write a poem celebrating your accomplishments and characteristics to be included in the installation of every Web Fonts. Around 1,000 people a month will read about what a great human being you are in iambic pentameter. Unfortunately, I cannot guarantee whether the poem will be any good because my experience is largely writing dirty limericks.
